SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — The Lake House is inviting locals and visitors to experience “Vine & Dine,” an exclusive five-course pairing dinner at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 2, presented by Executive Chef Jimi Nakamastu in a collaboration with Sommeliers Jeremiah Schwartz and Clifford Burr. 

This popular wine pairing is the second installment in the “Vine & Dine” series, and invites guests to treat themselves to an evening full of culinary inspired conversation, community, and delectable librations. The night will also be the perfect opportunity to view the recent renovations added to the already beautiful building laced with history. 

The menu will include delicious pairings such as striped bass and caviar with Mayu Elqui Valley Pedro Ximenez 2020.

“Our team is thrilled to present an upscale chef driven wine pairing dinner for our community to enjoy, and experience one of the latest and greatest upgrades to our restaurant scene,” said Lake House Founder and CEO Luca Genasci. “This is definitely an occasion that you don’t want to miss.” 

Tickets to the dining experience are limited and on sale for $185 per person. Chef Nakamatsu has prepared a menu guaranteed to wow even the most experienced pallets, with pairings such as striped bass sashimi with Tsar Nicolai American Sturgeon caviar to start the party and finishing the evening with dark chocolate mousse alongside 2018 Chateau Laribotte Sauterness. 

“My favorite aspect of the industry is engaging with people who enjoy discovering new wines,” said Sommelier Jeremiah Schwartz. “The saying holds true, it’s all about the journey, not necessarily the destination. Come join us on an exploration of these diverse flavors and world-class wine regions as shown through the spectrum of pairings from the Lake House kitchen. I am thrilled to collaborate with Chef Jimi and his culinary team.” 

Other items that will be featured on the menu include lobster paired with Wayfarer WF2 Fort Ross-Seaview Chardonnay 2020, duck paired with Maison Trenel Beaujolais Villages Gamay 2020, and veal paired with Clos Du Val Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019.
